Clear Out, Restore, and Be Workshop: Kripalu Center, MA
What does it mean to be fully present in your yoga practice and your life? Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman have designed yoga sequences that clear your body-mind of old, useless patterns and open the way for the present moment. These practices consist of a variety of poses that help you to expose and investigate areas of tension and binding so you can release them with mindfulness and ease. When you follow up with restorative sequences that lead to deep relaxation, you find yourself naturally primed for pranayama and meditation. It’s in the practice of meditation that you are fully absorbed in the miraculous unfolding of now. Rodney and Colleen welcome everyone who wants to clear out, restore, and be.

Asana For and As Pranayama at Kaia Yoga: Westport, CT
What is an essential sequence for setting up a Pranayama practice and how do we orient our asana practice so that it is a pranayama practice itself? We all understand how the breath can be a core focus in our Yoga, but do we really know how to observe the breath without manipulating it? We will use our breath and the absorption of Prana as the conductor of our practice so that our minds can follow instead of lead. The selection of specific poses and their order will show us how to develop the Bhandas to create a container for the "life force" as we continue our journey of Pranayama. Come and play with us and delve deep into the mysterious and all consuming art of yoga. All levels welcome.

Yoga Retreat at the Terme Manzi Hotel: Island of Ischia, Italy
Here we go again—we have found our next divine yoga retreat location! While in Italy, the Italians insisted that we visit the island of Ischia for our few precious days off, and how right they were. Ischia is a little Island about an hour ferry ride off the the coast from Naples, that has all of the enchanted qualities of Southern Italy. The five star Terme Manzi Hotel is absolutely stunning, and the food is unparalleled. You will be in awe of the beauty of the island, delighted, and pampered. The hotel spa rises to the occasion and may be the only other thing you come out of your amazing hotel room for—other than the yoga of course. Join us for the ultimate in food, fun, and yoga in Ischia Italy. We hop to meet you all there! Peace, Colleen and Rodney
